[RESOLVED] Asset server problems


As if????

This damned problem has been going for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks and...

Sorry...the repetition of SL grid staus reports is obviously rubbing off on me.

It. Is. Getting. Boring. And. REPETITIVE!!!

The only joy I get out of the grid being down is reading the posts which residents leave (IF and when LL leave the comments open, which is rare) - they are too funny!

Pure and utter whinging, back biting amongst each other and then the absolute wankers (sorry, but it has to be said) who write the whole..."But sl is a wonderful platform and we should all be so grateful and happy that we're a part of it and of course things will go wrong now and again. And isn't it great that I can now use the time to go and stroke my pet goldfish and clean my basement and catch up on my knitting! And I...oh my...I just, like, so adore those Linden Lab chappies!! Mwah mwah to all you wonderful LL workers!"


I'm sorry, yes...SL is amazing when you actually stop to think about it and the pure possibilities that it offers, the technical "stuff" that has been achieved and what it could possibly be kick starting in terms of an internet revolution.

BUT!!! But, but, but, BUUUUUTTTTTT!

This same bloody problem - time and time again!! Let's be very fair here....we would all get our backsides fired if we fucked up as much as this! On the SAME thing constantly!

I quote from the new shiny grid status report blog thingie:

May 12th, 2008 - LindeX and Land Transactions failing
[Resolved] Number of asset servers offline
May 11th, 2008 - [RESOLVED] Asset server problems
[RESOLVED] Asset server problems
May 9th, 2008 - [RESOLVED] Asset storage cluster problems
May 5th, 2008 - [RESOLVED] Database Issues
May 3rd, 2008 - [RESOLVED] Database disruptions
May 2nd, 2008 - [CLEARED] Logins and other db-related services slow
[RESOLVED] Some Webservers Not Showing Current Transaction History
May 1st, 2008 - [RESOLVED] Second Life In-World Service Issues
[RESOLVED] Transaction History unavailable
April 29th, 2008- [RESOLVED]Problematic Logins (and forced logoffs)
[RESOLVED] - In-world search affected

If you go back and look through the blog for April, there are over 30 such entries...I couldn't be arsed to copy / paste them all.

Now look at them carefully...what do you notice?

Yes, yes...all database problems of some kind...that's obvious.

Look again and tell me what you see as a truly worrying re-occurring problem here.

Got it?

Come on! Its obvious...look!

Yes! I know! The Americans* seem to have a language problem...."resolved"? Did some muppet not look in the dictionary to find out what this means?!?!?!

"Bring to an end; settle conclusively". THAT'S what "resolved" bloody well means!

Maybe the databases keep fekking up coz some techie idiot can't read the English language instructions on the packaging?

Seems to me to be a likely explanation.

Common guys...write something else! I find that more irritating than SL being offline!

*takes a deep, calming breath and buggers off to Twinity, apologising profusely to any and all of the lovely and wonderful US peeps she knows who are clever and know what the word "resolved" actually means as she goes.
